Having lived in Melbourne as a student, the co-founder of Amazing Graze adores hunting for food at the bustling Australian city.
“I love the whole works of a big breakfast; poached eggs, avocados, sautéed mushrooms, heirloom tomatoes, aged cheese with freshly baked farmers bread. It's all about getting the yolk perfectly runny and using really fresh produce! Even before I started Amazin' Graze with my partners, I was already a huge fan of good granola parfaits or oat porridge with lots and lots of colourful fresh fruits for its health benefits," says Ching Yi.
Ching Yi’s Malaysian Brunch Picks: “I love BLVD House for their well-executed savoury dishes that hit the spot. I'm a huge pastry lover and Kenny Hills Bakers does lovely homemade and rustic flavours. As much as I enjoy a beautiful brunch setting, I love brunching at Village Park for the irreplaceable nasi lemak.”
Ching Yi’s Travel Brunch Picks: “I would recommend Montalto Vineyard & Olive Grove in Melbourne for farm-to-table food, its view overlooking a vineyard and delicious wine! I also love cafes in sunny Bali, like Sea Circus and Sisterfields. There is a smoothie I love from Sisterfields that is made from dates, fresh bananas and soy milk! I replicate it at home whenever I have time.
Finally, you will think of macarons when I mention Ladurèe bu they make yummy pastries and breakfast eggs too! I visit Ladurèe in the morning when the croissants are fresh off the oven.”
